I have never had a true fecal occult test. My GP did. Digital recital exam and then rubbed her finger on the occult card and that was negative but I don't think that's an accurate way to do it. I was upset when I saw the Gastro too because I was hoping she would do the simple anoscopy to look into side the rectum and see internal hems.
Looks normal and healthy to me.Lindsay…you are in a really bad place right now. You need to treat your anxiety. The extremes you're going to are not normal behavior. The constant checking and rechecking and using mirrors and flashlights is not doing you any good.
Thanks so much for all the great inspiring words. It truly helps but I am still a complete mess about my upcoming sigmoidoscopy. I can't put into words the feeling I have. Eats so bad about my HA is that I will often google other medical conditions it illness to take my mind off my fear. For example today I googled cervical cancer in tur 20s jut as I have googled colon cancer in your 20s alma or daily for a year. I don't know why I do it. It honestly scare me more because there was an overwhelming amount of young women with cervical cancer so I started getting nervous about the "what ifs" there. My problem with HA is none one can promise me I won't get a bad medical illness. There is no doctor or therapist who can assure me it won't happen. And for that reason I think it will be a part of my life forever.
